I will just get the bad points out the way first, maybe because I am so annoyed this great game has these stupid flaws. The biggest and most puzzling is if you buy the PAL version of this game you can only play people in the EU!!! why oh why have EA done this. I have friends from all over especially over the pond and for a reason (known only to EA) I cant play with them on it? This stupid decision just limits the number of people you can play with and it does make it hard to find a COOP game. This leads me to another frustrating point, ok I choose to play a coop game and in every other co-op game I would now normally choose to host a Coop game or join one yes? Oh not with army of 2 you just select CO-OP game and it seems to be up to gods wether you carry on in your game or join someone else in theirs.
As other reviews have pointed out the actual online multiplayer mode (versus) is next to useless, before you can even think about looking for a game you need to get another 3 friends in to your game first. As we all know the farce that is PSNetwork does not help you with this, as it has no cross game invites ect. In rectrospect I should have really bought this game on the my 360! but I found 2nd hand on PS3 and bought it. So if you have the choice get the 360 version, as Army of 2's unfriendly online modes out along with PS Network is not a great mix. There other problems too, once again EA are trying to win the shortest game in the world award, well they plenty of competition dont they, with GEARS, GRAW2, COD4 ect all taking less then 5 hours to complete, this worrying trend is driving me mad!.Read more ›
BUT : play it with a friend, alot more fun, trust me and just be wary that after the few hours spent, you are done for now, but hopefully not for long
The controls can be a bit fiddly at first but they do not take that much time to get used to but they could be improved in the parachuting sections. There is also an option to 'pimp' your weapons but this is pointless as all the weapons will be unlocked at the end of the game anyway and you could easily use the weapon you start off with all the way through the game. The targeting leaves a lot to be desired. I found it hard to hit a moving target and even harder to hit a target from close range. Still, the game was way too easy and becomes repetitive very quickly. On the plus side, the graphics were very good.
I'm cutting my review short as I've come down with something and I have an extrordinary headache.
Graphics 8/10 Sound 7/10 Gameplay 6/10 Length 1/10 OVERALL 5/10
The graphic is detailed, clear and homogenous. Comparable with Ghost Recon.
Animation is 1. class.
Between the missions you have video clips which tell the background story and new entry of the mission.
These clips have movie quality and are totally awesome. Best I ever saw.
The sound is perfect. Best with 7.1. You are in the middle of the scene and know exactly what is where.
You have to perform missions and in the mission several tasks. For each task you get money.
With the money you can buy equipment.
But you are equipped well. A HK36, an M14 Sniper and a Pistol. This is ok for the beginning.
With the money you can upgrade your weapons or buy new ones.
The game starts with a little training ground in which you learn the basics of the game and how to interact
with your partner. During the game you get hints when something is new.
You do not have to bother with maps. When you want to know where to go, activate the GPS and virtual arrows
on the ground show you the way. Very useful.
Saving happens at checkpoints. This is OK. When you have to restart, you do not have do replay too long.
The interaction with your virtual partner makes a lot of fun. You also have to move dynamic. If you stay, you find yourself in a munition intensive firefight and be soon in trouble.
If you work efficient together with your partner, you will find your method getting trough quite easily.
Sniping simultaneously with your partner to eliminate guards, exchange weapons with your partner, let your partner fight aggressive so that the enemies mainly concentrate on him. Then you have the chance to go around them and attack them from behind.
These are only a few possibilities.Read more ›
